Spring News and Events!

Tuesday, May 10 - 4:30 p.m.  There will be a general meeting in the elementary/middle school cafeteria.  Snacks will be provided by our President, Rodney Ernhart, who will go over some of what we have accomplished this year.  Most importantly, how can you help out for our upcoming events?
  • Thursday, May 12 - 10:30 a.m.  This is our annual TEACHER APPRECIATION LUNCHEON!  We desperately need food donations!  There will be a luncheon in the Middle School Home Ec Room for all staff in the elementary & middle school.  There will be a "Grab & Go' luncheon in the high school teachers' lounge.  We need main dishes, salads, desserts, or whatever you would like to bring!  Please respond via email with what you would like to bring.  THANK YOU!
  • Tuesday, May 17 - all dayThis is the FOURTH ANNUAL FUN RUN!  We need volunteers to help set up early in the morning - cutting bananas, setting up water, etc. We also need volunteers to mark laps on the bibs of the participating runners.  Again, we will need help cleaning up after the event.  Whoever gets the most donations in Grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 will win prizes.  This year, all three prizes will be  mini ipads!  In the first year of this event we raised $23K and purchased a C.O.W. (computers on wheels).  Last year we split the money in three ways - $4500 went towards our lower playground, $5000 went towards our upper playground, and $4500 is being spent on an exciting new project that will benefit all students, teachers, staff and our community.  A covered pavilion with picnic tables, lighting and countless opportunities for generations to come is in the works.  More will be covered on this project at the meeting and in the students' Thursday folders.
  • Friday, June 3 - after school   This is our last event of the school year - BIGFORK PTA ANNUAL SPRING CARNIVAL!  We will need help to man games, set up, and clean up.  This is always a fun family event.  There will be lots of fun games and prizes, food, a band, mini golf, a bounce house, and petting zoo!  Please plan to come, bring your family and friends, volunteer for an hour, and HAVE A GREAT YEAR-END BLAST!
